Another summer is winding down, which means those of us lucky enough to live close to orchards have access to delicious peaches.
Yes, it’s that nerdiest of holidays, Pi Day! I could ask you your favorite irrational number, but since I’d like people to actually comment, I’m bringing back the classic Internet fight over Team Cake vs. Team Pie.
There is no need for an excuse when it comes to good food. So without further ado I present to you: banoffee pie.
When I’m stressed out, I bake. My repertoire consists of exactly two goods: banana muffins (slightly updated recipe from my mom’s circa-1970’s cookbook) and chocolate chip cookies (back of the Trader Joe’s chocolate chip bag, slightly updated from Nestle). I have my limits, sure. But it’s hard to dispute this form of coping. It’s cheaper […]
Now that Halloween is over, American Persephoneers are probably turning their thoughts to the turkey feast that is Thanksgiving, and the inevitable leftover pile-up in its wake. But there is hope. My dear American neighbours, I am Canadian and I had my Thanksgiving weeks ago. I can guide you in the ways of leftover use […]
Where did the summer go? It feels like I was just starting to get the hang of this season and now my calendar tells me it’s over. Well, forget that noise. Summer isn’t over until I say it’s over. Or, more accurately, it isn’t over until after the Autumnal Equinox.
It’s cherry season in my part of the world, which means, much like rhubarb season, that it’s time to make lots of delicious pie. It’s also about that time when the novelty of summer wears off, and the prospect of many long, hot, humid days ahead is enough to make you want to hide in […]
Overall, I am not a fancy person. I don’t fully understand garnish, and artfully arranged sauces that look like stretched out, abstract sharks circling my dinner do nothing to entice me. At the same time, I love food and eating, so this six-ingredient pie that takes minutes to make is right up my alley.
This weekend was the annual local pie competition. Last year, if you’ll recall from my earlier post, I came in third place with my strawberry rhubarb, which is a traditional flavor for this particular time of year. It was one of four strawberry rhubarbs entered, though, so this year I decided to go for a […]
Now that it’s hot outside, I’m craving cold things. Iced coffee in the morning, cold iced tea in the afternoon, and in the evening, a cold treat of some sort.
Today’s question is an easy one, or perhaps not. What is your favorite kind of pie? I am a fan of cream pies, both banana and chocolate, but not coconut, because coconuts are yucky. Photo by thebittenword.com, via Wikimedia Commons
Rejoice, for rhubarb season is upon us! Well, at least that’s what I was thinking when I saw rhubarb in the grocery store for the first time this spring. Why the excitement over rhubarb, you might ask? Because that means it’s time for strawberry rhubarb pie!
Resulting in cheers and jeers alike, March 19th marked the annual Pies of March ride orchestrated by NYC’s direct action environmental organization Time’s Up!, best known for their involvement with NYC’s Critical Mass rides. These rides are ridiculously entertaining and inspiring, but the continual ticketing and police harassment of participants calls for an active ridership […]
Some days, it’s easy as pie to think of a good TDG. Others, not so much. Today is one of those days. I seriously just searched for unicorn pictures on all our stock photo sites, I’m so lost this morning. So I’m going to cheat a little, and just post pictures of pie.
My sweet tooth is aching, so I searched out some pretty dessert pictures to drool over. Happy Tuesday morning, readers! Hope today will be all that and a plate full of sweet stuff. We’ll be here all day with all sorts of goodness for your brain.
